Bodmin and Wenford Railway

Take a delightful return railway journey on the Bodmin and Wenford Railway*, then transfer by coach to Lanhydrock House. This beautiful house is the epitome of a stately home, with incredible architecture showing in both the main house and the gatehouse. The bulk of the house was built in the Victorian times, but some parts date back to the 17th century. The interior showcases the luxury of living the aristocratic Victorian life, and we have plenty of time to enjoy the house before visiting Fowey for some free time.
